Luggage Storage Edinburgh

The Scottish capital of Edinburgh is a city steeped in history. From its forbidding castle on an ancient volcanic mound to its cobblestone streets full of quirky shops and excellent restaurants, the city offers a glimpse into the past. But Edinburgh is no museum. Instead, it’s the vibrant capital of a nation with its sights firmly fixed on the future.

Edinburgh is the perfect place to explore on foot, so if you want to make the most of your time here, leave your bags behind in a Bounce luggage storage location for the day.

How does Bounce luggage storage work in Edinburgh? 

The moment you arrive in the city, you’ll want to head out exploring. But Edinburgh is not a place where you want to be weighed down by heavy things. Ordinarily, your hotel may be able to store bags for you before you check in or after you check out. However, in the old buildings of Edinburgh, there isn’t always space to hold your things. Besides, if you’re not staying in a hotel, you may not be able to take advantage of these services. If you’re just passing through, it’s always a good idea to find a safe place to leave your bags behind.

That’s where Bounce comes in. Our luggage storage service makes it easy to leave bags of any size behind for as long as you need.

  • Book in a few taps: Use our app to find where you are in the city, choose a location that works for you, and pay in advance online with no hidden fees.
  • Check in: Head to the luggage storage location, show your booking confirmation to an employee, and drop off your bags.
  • Explore: Spend your time enjoying the city unencumbered, then head back to the location when you’re ready and show your confirmation to the staff again to pick up your bags.

Convenient spots to stow your bags in Edinburgh

Bounce offers you the freedom to store your things in any location that’s convenient to you. From our popular location inside Waverley train station to nearly 40 partners found close to transportation hubs and tourist hotspots in the city, the choice is yours when it comes to leaving your bags behind with Bounce.

Main transportation hubs in Edinburgh

Waverley Station is Edinburgh’s main train station, and it provides one of the most popular ways to get into the city. Waverley station receives trains coming from major cities throughout Scotland and across the whole of the UK. Plus, it’s also connected to Edinburgh airport by fast tram and a ten minute train ride, so you can reach the heart of Edinburgh very quickly from the airport.

It’s hard to beat the convenience of leaving your bags at the train station. You can go directly from your train to one of our partners, drop off your things, and then have your hands-free to explore the city. In fact, depending on how much you’ve packed, you could even leave your belongings at Waverley station for the whole time you’re in the city, and pick them up when you’re ready to leave.

Edinburgh Airport is the biggest and busiest in all of Scotland, as befits its capital city. Serving over 12 million passengers every year, Edinburgh Airport receives flights from London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Alicante, and other destinations across Europe.

If you’re flying in and out of Edinburgh, it can be extremely convenient to leave your bags near the airport. That way, you can take only what you need into the city and leave the heavy suitcases behind until you’re ready to pick them up and make your next journey.

Main Hotspots in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle is perhaps the biggest attraction in Edinburgh. The atmospheric ramparts tower over the city, and you can get incredible views over the surrounding countryside from the castle itself. Plus, the turbulent history of the castle, which is the most besieged castle in the whole UK, makes for a fascinating story that will tell you more about the history of the city and of Scotland as a whole. Let’s face it: if you’re visiting Edinburgh, you simply have to visit the castle, so it can be very convenient to store your bags in this central location.

Another great place to uncover the history of Scotland is at the country’s National Museum. Located in Edinburgh not too far from the castle, the National Museum of Scotland is free to visit, but can easily eat up a few hours or a whole day. Exhibits tell the complex story of Scotland from prehistoric times up to the present day, and with so much to learn, you won’t want to be weighed down with heavy bags. Leaving your bags at the Royal Mile, near the museum makes them easy to retrieve, since the museum is reachable from almost everywhere in the city.
